Drug Plane Dropped 1½ Tons of Cocaine near Rio Hondo before Crash Landing

Tonight, a Mexican news outlet is providing details of a wet drop purportedly from a suspected drug plane that crash landed in Cuatro Leguas, outside of Blue Creek, Orange Walk last Tuesday. According to the reports, while military and police authorities deployed a large security operation in the Río Hondo, a group of six boats with two outboard motors each and a Belizean crew removed one and a half tons of cocaine that the aircraft dumped in the waters of the Río Hondo, before crash landing in Orange Walk. Residents of the Mexican town of Ramonal have given extensive details of what they claim they saw. According to the reports, the plane was flying very low as it discharged the parcels of drugs in a water channel that connects Mexico to the village of Patchakan, Corozal District. The villagers also say that within minutes, the more than a hundred packages were loaded into boats. There are also reports that some of the men working in the operation were armed. To their surprise, on the following day they read the reports of the crash landing of a plane in Belize that fit the description of the king air beech craft.

    Hope you keep that drug safe, sell to the U.S. and build another government hospital with the money. Also use the remainder to pay off the debt.
